Thrift store finds and bulletin boards

Here are my latest finds from the thrift store, I love that place more and more all the time! First there are two silver trays and one silver bowl, all for 70 cents each. The two little frames were each 70 cents also. Then there was the ric rac for 30 cents each and some little truffle boxes and cups. Lastly, I found a pink cutting mat for about $1! I have it on my desk right next to my computer, so I can cut and work on the internet at the same time.

These are pix of my two bulletin boards, I LOVE bulletin boards! I buy these at the thrift store whenever they are cheap enough. The first one I painted the frame light blue with chocolate brown polka dots, and the background brown. It turned out to be the perfect spot to show off Jenny and Aaron's cupcake artwork. I also have some of Sabrina's artwork hanging at the bottom. The second one is cream with black seaming binding tape around the edge. It was mostly Halloween, when I first put it up, but now it more general. Well, gotta get back to work, as I have a big order to complete for Rosanna from Italy. Bye for now! :)
